The Canopy Cut is a quarterly quick reference resource for market systems and private sector development and engagement practitioners interested in the practical application of current trends in Gender Equality and Social Inclusion (GESI). It is a curated list comprising a range of resources from blogs to detailed guidance to infographics – which have been published and circulated on public platforms like the BEAM Exchange, LinkedIn, and Marketlinks. 

The Canopy Cut is not intended to be comprehensive and the emphasis on different angles of GESI may vary from edition to edition.
